Tried install Ubuntu 12_7 on PC with Windows 7. I install Ubuntu in separate partition. Also I desided to install loader in the first block of hard drive (MBR), so naturally I have to go and edit grub config. But when I load Ubuntu I cant find my windows partition!!!(. Ubuntu marked it as "unallocated space". My other NTFS partition (without windows) Ubuntu can recognize. Also somehow ubuntu says that partition method GRUID instead of MBR (before installation it was MBR, I swerar ), so I losing all hope to recover Windows. Any assistance will be apriciated.

TL:DR I cant find my windows partitition after install Ubuntu (on sepearate partition) HALP!
